introduce this bill. read hopes that no other mother has to go through what she did. >> it's one day at a time. i want justice. and going to be no justice, i'm not not going to have any peace until i get justice. >> i have an update to my story on monday afternoon the u.s. attorney paul fishman released a statement saying he was not going to pursue civil and criminal charges against the peace officers involved in jerome reed shooting. i reached out to the family and walter hudson, who i who i spoke with early this afternoon issued a statement saying, i am astounded by this decision. i ask if we cannot rely on the local state and federal government, then then who and what can people do in this country when they have been done wrong in fighting justice. for more more follow me at chasing tamara. >> what kind of food do you like?
>> to me it's important because basically our main mission -- >> what happens to a watchdog that has no to, no bar, and no by? right now the state of new jersey law-enforcement commission is just that. a watchdog task to look over candidates and money spent on election campaign but cannot do anything for this reason. they only have one guy on the board of commission. >> you are the low commissioner right now. what can you do, what can you not to? >> basically i can't do anything. >> that is ron, the chairman, normally there should be for people on the committee but two of them literally dropped dead from natural causes between 2011 and now. the third man, walter is now state supreme court justice. >> i can't afford a motion second it myself. speemac's oppressed rating frustrating? >> very much so.
>> only in new jersey would you have a situation like this. of course, we know that he has done apart work in the past. one of the biggest case on the docket right now, 13 count violation against essex county joe -- going through the courts right now. you have to wonder as some in new jersey have, is there a motive behind the fact that the governor has not filed the nominees to go on the board. i asked that of him point blank. >> we look at every politician in new jersey is either in compliance were not in compliance. we don't look at ours, we don't look at eyes, comments irrelevant, they're either in compliant or not. >> some actually do want to be compliant. >> most of them do. >> we did reach out to about the governor's office and steve sweeney to ask if there is going to be anyone put up for the board anytime soon. steve sweeney's office's office responded with a brief statement saying they were going to have
qualified democrats sent to the governor very shortly. the governor governor office sent us a long statement saying that understand governor cannot just pick any democrats from outer space to seat in the vacant elected position. that is not rooted in reality and they blame the democrats for this impacts. >> overall it's important to have full complement so we can fully operate. >> to think that some violation that may be happening at the moment that are not being looked at that are not as high in the pecking order, is it harder to go back and fix them after elections happen, do you think that there's a reason this is happening? >> while the chairman of board, the one current never says, i want to know if there's a violation for the candidate before going to the voting booth. not afterwards. we have a presidential election and a lot of local offices coming up in november. on november 2017 there's a governor's election.

answer my own question, he's living in an 86% white town. i'm wondering if that word negro is still use. i would like to ask him to try that at the newark city council meeting and see what kind of reaction he get and see what kind of reaction he get. >> hopefully this opens his mind and educates him. if he is using the term negro, i would be be afraid of what he would address other groups as. seemed like he has been living in the past and we need to bring them to the future. >> i would agree with ashley. people who know him say he's not a big it, the reaction from naacp and worn in sussex county the end of lacey p spokesman said he's not racist and his term as may be outdated but it's not in a cadet of on part of the mayor. >> the mayor's probably not a big it but he's brought the definitely a moron. >> i don't think that's fair. >> if you read any of african-american literature that is the word that is used. yes it's old, yes people don't use it, but he should not catch a plane for. >> would you use a? >> would i use it? no. it's an old word. >> if the word was in common use and he was a kid, but the the time he is a teenager nobody's that word anymore. he knows that her. >> my grandma's 92 and doesn't use that word. word. and she lives in warren county.
